With a spectacular win against India under their belt, New Zealand will be hoping to continue their sparkling form when they take on hosts Sri Lanka in the second match of the tri-series tournament today.
Sri Lanka are a tough opponent at home but the way New Zealand crushed India in the series-opener, the hosts must have re-worked their strategy against the Black Caps.
Once again the toss will play an important role. The team batting first has the advantage of setting a tough task for their opponents in bowler friendly conditions under lights.
Both the teams have some exciting pacemen in their ranks and if the conditions favour them again, it promises to be a cracking contest between ball and bat.
A second consecutive win will enhance New Zealand’s chances of making the summit clash but an in-form Sri Lanka would rely on its players to make a winning start.
